Aw, Nubbins!

I have had a tough week.

First, WordPress, the site which hosts my weblog, dropped support for the editor I finally had gotten used to, making updates and additions somewhat more efficient than they had been under the old old editor. Now there is the new “Block” editor and I was forced to go page by page through the website updating to the new editor.

And this doesn’t even account for the added time I was forced to spend learning new ways to do what was almost automatic before.

Diving Into the Reading Pool

Jeanette and I At B&N (HHI)I used to spend almost as much time in coffee shops and Barnes & Noble as I did at home (not counting the hours of sleep orbed-tossing). Even when I didn’t need to go to Starbuck’s, my wife would take me shopping and drop me off for coffee and several hours of reading.

Please note the change

The direct domain “thefairiequeene.org” will no longer be available to access the adjunct site dedicated to Spenser’s The Faerie Queene.

A couple of months back I decided to make the FQ website into a sub-site on my long-standing site dedicated to general reading (and critical thinking) … A Celebration of Reading or ACOR. All the secondary pages that once were a part of the FQ site were moved to ACOR and the FQ site was retained to allow a second weblog stream, one dedicated to The Faerie Queene and the other more general (including the Experimental Fiction (XFX) site).

From ACOR you can access the Faerie Queene weblog by following the link under the ACTIVE menu. This allows a fairly straightforward access to the FQ weblog and also allows more general access to the ACOR weblog and ancillary reading pages. The FQ weblog can still be accessed directly by changing your link to be thefaeriequeenedotorg.wordpress.com … but then you’ll miss what’s new at ACOR.
